Necmi at Boating Turkey found us the perfect gulet and crew for our small family. Boating Turkey were completely professional in their dealings with us and we would highly recommend them. The boat was beautiful and the crew took us to some quiet and beautiful spots along the coast. Captain Mehmet and the crew were extremely courteous and kind. It was our daughter's birthday while we were away and they managed to get us a cake with her name on it without us even asking. It really was a holiday of a lifetime and we will never forget it.

Dear Necmi and Rusen,
Thank you again for your assistance in planning our Turkish gulet trip. I highly recommend Boating Turkey for anyone considering a gulet charter trip in Turkey. When I first began reaching out to brokers, I was connected to Eastern European agencies who could not answer very basic questions about the boats or the itineraries. When I found Boating Turkey, and began to work with Necmi, I was delighted to learn that the brokerage is based in Bodrum. They are intimately involved with the local gulet business, and were extremely helpful in planning our trip. Necmi was able to provide several gulet options for our group of 16. Once we decided on the Ametist A, Necmi and Rusen were always quick to respond and helpful in making changes and additions per our needs.
Upon our arrival in Bodrum, Rusen was on the boat to greet us. He stayed for a couple of hours to make sure that everything was ready prior to our departure. We made last minute changes to catering and water toys for the week, and Rusen was happy to help with the logistics. He seemed genuinely reluctant to leave until he was assured the crew was ready to leave and we had everything we needed.
As for the boat and crew, we could not have been happier. Captain Recep was well attuned to our wishes, and constantly found beautiful, secluded and protected coves for swimming, hiking ashore, and relaxing in the peaceful surroundings. We marveled at his ability to park a beamy 27 foot boat in a 25 foot wide space at the dock. Chef Süleyman earned a round of applause at every meal. It was unreal how he could produce such varied and plentiful meals from such a small space. Basar, Ismail, and Olgun were excellent deck hands who quickly learned our likes and thoughtfully attended to all of our needs. The week would not have been the same without such an outstanding crew.
Thank you again to Necmi and Rusen for helping us put together a truly wonderful vacation. We cant wait to get back!

What a great holiday!
Back in the UK now!
Just wanted to say how impressed we were with this wonderful holiday
From the initial booking, to your helpful emails, the taxi transfer perfectly timed, the welcome on boarding by Mr Mehmet and the crew, all was faultless
The crew were very helpful and courteous and the meals were as good as any restaurant
The route was well chosen and gave us so much enjoyment visiting the coves and bays in such beautiful sorroundings
We would not hesitate in recommending this wonderful holiday to our friends
Thank you and well done
I was recently on board the Grand Mare with Michelle Neumann and my friends. We had an amazing adventure and I personally loved being on board every minute. The crew were friendly and respectful in every way. Having said that I would jump at the chance to get back on board and go sailing again. Hope this is of some help.
